Transics International, which provides fleet management systems for transport and logistics companies, saw an opportunity to enhance its on-board computer with new technology. The features in the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 operating system inspired the organisation to develop an even more intuitive solution for users. Working with two Microsoft Windows Embedded Gold Partners, Transics developed the TX-MAX on-board computer. Enhancements to its operating system helped developers bring the computer to market quickly. The device, which is carried by drivers, communicates in real time with Transics fleet management software TX-CONNECT providing detailed information of each journey and helping customers optimise deliveries. Clients benefit from clear views of their businesses and reduced communications costs of around 30 per cent, while lower fuel consumption contributes to a cleaner environment.
